Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Smokey Hazel Eyes

This is going to be another rave review for Physicians Formula eye shadows!  I recently picked up the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Smokey Hazel Eyes in a great sale at CVS.  Once again, I am so impressed by the quality and pigmentation of these eye shadows.  The colors are true to what you see in the package once applied.  They are buttery soft and blend wonderfully.  The value is great, as well; for around $12 you get 9 shadows!  You can create endless looks with this one little palette.  I just can't say enough great things about these eye shadows.  If you don't have any of the Shimmer Strips yet, run out and get 'em!

Dupe Alert!!!

As you can see from the swatches, the taupe shade (in the middle) from the Shimmer Strips is a very close dupe for the cult classic MAC Satin Taupe.  While Satin Taupe is slightly less frosty, the shades are very comparable in texture, pigmentation and blending.  I'm really impressed with how well the Physicians Formula eye shadows stand up to high end eye shadows like MAC shadows.
